Lentil and Bacon Soup
Put rinsed split lentils to boil in a pan of simmering water for 30 minutes.
In a heavy based saucepan, cook some sliced bacon, then add a chopped onion, red pepper, garlic, chilli and ginger. Cook until onion is soft. Add S+P and mixed green herbs.
Chop two small sweet potatoes.
Pour the lentils into the bacon and veg pot, add the sweet potato and add some veg stock, bring back to simmer until the potato is soft. Roughly whizz with a stick blender.
Serve with a little grated cheese if you wish.
